I have seen some cool earring display holders in blog land and needed to create one. My current collection of jewelry was literally in a jumbled ball sitting in a dish and every morning I'd spend precious minutes fighting with this ball of metal only to end up wearing the same thing over and over after frustration of not finding a matching piece.
So, I came up with this very inexpensive solution.
Here are the materials:
1” thick Styrofoam sheet
First I cut the Styrofoam to the same size as the scrapbook paper, which was about 12” x 12”. This particular Styrofoam was part of some toy packaging and I've been saving just for projects like this.
Then using Mod Podge I glued the scrapbook paper down to the Styrofoam.
I glued the top which help with durability since the earrings will rub against the paper.
Note: Before gluing, I painted the sides with regular acrylic craft paint.
While the Mod Podge was still drying, I placed the staple shaped nails right into the board. No hammer needed, they just press easily through the paper into the Styrofoam.
I think the staple nails work best when they are placed at an angle or straight up and down.
The straight nails are added at the top for hanging necklaces.
Here is also one I made in pink.
Of course you can get as simple or as elaborate with these as you want which is exactly what I plan to do so please stay tuned!
